Max Velocity Tactical (MVT) offers 2 Day Force on Force (FoF) Team Tactics Classes. These are immersive scenario based classes utilizing Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) Man Marker Rounds (MMR). The FoF classes involve the practical application of team based small unit tactics (SUT) in controlled training scenarios.
AR15 rifles only. Your bolt will be replaced by a supplied UTM blue bolt.
Ensure your AR15 is ‘broken in’ and reliable.
Empty magazines x 8 – you will be required to put a band of blue tape on the magazines.
Barrels and chambers pulled through / rodded CLEAN & DRY – no oil/lube. Other working parts lightly oiled.
UTM approved masks / goggle combinations can be supplied, or appropriate gear brought by students (see below, recommended).
UTM Man Marker Rounds rounds will be supplied as part of the class price.
Left hand ejection port AR15’s will not work with the supplied UTM bolts.
Personal Protection Equipment:
The minimum of protection is as follows:
Ballistic Eye Protection.
No Exposed Skin.
Ballistic Eye Protection: You must wear some type of ballistic goggle or alternatively ballistic eye protection that leaves no gaps / is sealed to your face. Appropriate goggles include military issue / approved. Also, for example, Wiley X offers a number of goggle products (meeting or exceeding military standards). You cannot take any risks with your vision, so make sure your eye protection is adequate. Simple wrap-around shades do not suffice. Fogging is sometimes an issue with goggles, the biggest bugbear for students, so whatever you choose to bring, ensure you use an anti-fog treatment.
Optional, recommended by UTM:
Loose clothing ‘recommended.’
An outer layer of BDU style clothing is recommended.
2 layers of loose clothing is recommend by UTM, but not required.
No exposed skin is a mandatory rule.
Military style helmet, either ballistic or bump, solid with no gaps / holes.
MVT has a number of airsoft style helmets if you don’t have your own.
Groin protector/cup ‘recommended.’
Tactical / ballistic gloves.
Females: chest protector.
Body armor / plates / chest rig / tactical vest or similar to cover the chest area.
The minimum required is Goggle-style Ballistic Eye Protection, and no exposed skin. Head/neck coverage can be achieved by a balaclava/gator in addition to a hat. For those wishing greater head/face protection from the UTM rounds, you may consider:
Helmet: bump or ballistic style, gunfighter or ACH shape, no holes. Airsoft pretend helmets work.
Facial metal mesh protector: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Neck protector. Purpose bought airsoft type or a shemagh or neck gater will work to protect the neck and cover up exposed parts of the head below the helmet to the rear.
It follows on from CTT/CP (or CTT only) and is an opportunity to validate skills and training in a dynamic scenario based environment.
Think of the FoF training you may be familiar with in CQB training, applied out in the woods to Small Unit Tactics (SUT).
For those of you who have been asking for leadership training, this is an excellent environment to develop both teamwork and leadership skills in a simulated combat environment. The specific scenarios will be student-led and cadre adjudicated.
The FoF Man Marker Round travels at around 350 m/s and is thus about the same as a paintball round, and thus there is not a significant pain penalty if you get hit. All exposed skin is covered and safety gear is worn. Simunition, of which you may have heard horror stories, travels about twice as fast and hurts! The UTM round is accurate out to 50 meters and is thus good for use in the restricted sight-lines of the wooded VTC training area.
A safety brief specific to UTM MMR will be given before training, and required safety procedures conducted by cadre.
Scenarios will have rules / boundaries that must be adhered to.
There will be safe zone and exercise scenario areas designated.
NO LIVE WEAPONS, AMMUNITION, CHEMICAL IRRITANTS, OR EDGED IMPACT WEAPONS ARE PERMITTED IN THE TRAINING AREA.
Treat the UTM converted weapon with the same degree of seriousness as you would live weapons and ammunition.
Do not load until directed to do so.
Indiscriminate firing, or unsafe or frivolous behavior will not be tolerated.
During Force on Force training all participants must wear designated safety equipment and the equipment must remain in place until an instructor ends the exercise e.g., “Out of Role”, “Cease Fire” or loud whistle / horn blast.
No exposed skin is mandatory. (Exposed skin WILL result in injury.)
Approved Face Mask, Ballistic Goggles (NO SUN GLASSES), Gloves, Groin Protection.
Females must use at least concealable body armor or some type of chest protector.
Upon hearing “Out of Role”, “Cease Fire” or loud whistle blast, stop all activity immediately.
If a helmet or throat guard becomes dislodged during exercises, immediately protect yourself by covering the exposed area and begin shouting “Out of Role”, “Cease Fire.”
Simulate punches, kicks, strikes, and do not abuse the role players.
For safety purposes do not use contact shots – minimum safe range for the MMR round is 1 meter.
Do not give up or quit until stopped by an instructor. Injury or unsafe situations are the exception.
Report all injuries to the instructor immediately.
During any training with UTM, including blank fire, eye protection is always required.
Everyone is a safety officer and can stop the action at any time if they perceive an unsafe situation by shouting “Cease Fire” or “Out of Role.”
UTM Man Marker Rounds:
The MMR is an excellent product that will run through your rifle with a replacement ‘blue bolt,’ supplied by UTM. We have purchased UTM bolts in 5.56 for the AR15 platform. Otherwise it uses the same magazines, however the rifle fitted with a UTM bolt is be unable to fire live ammunition.
The technology of the UTM MMR is ingenious in that it fires a low velocity projectile, designed in a way to provide enough gas to cycle the rifle, which is low pain on impact. The MMR is not as hard hitting as simunition, but you will still feel it. The MMR has an effective training range out to 50 meters, which is ideal for use in woodland conditions.
